Choroidal thickness increases to be expected after cataract surgery in elderly patients

August 21, 2014

Elderly patients with senile cataracts can be expected to maintain increases in subfoveal choroidal thickness for at least 6 months following cataract surgery, according to researchers.

The researchers included 29 eyes of 29 patients with senile cataracts who received standard phacoemulsification and IOL implantation from 2012 to 2013 in an observational case series. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography was used to measure subfoveal choroidal thickness and central retinal thickness at baseline and at months 1, 3 and 6.
